“He did his cooking by running towards the end, getting the adrenaline pumping – he got everything ready, kind of stood back and absorbed it all.

“Due to the pressure, they were trying to do everything too quickly. And they had professional knives, which they had never handled before, so there were a lot of nicks and cuts.”

It appears that Harry wasn’t the only one to sustain an injury, with some of the other contestants having had knife-related incidents as well.
